Taking a road trip down Route 66? Stop off in Afton, an original farming and railroad town with some classic Route 66 roadside architecture. Here, visitors can take a tour of the original nine-foot narrow section of the famous route, known as the Ribbon Road, or partake in water sports down at the Grand Lake o’the Cherokees.
Afton is truly classic small town America and photographers will love the many chances to snap shots of the shells of vintage gas stations, hotels, and motels.
The Grand Lake is where locals and visitors can rent boats, jet skis, sailing boats or join yacht tours to explore the expansive waters of the lake. Additionally, outside of town the beauty of Oklahoma beckons with nearby walks and trails in nature.
For rainy days, head to the National Rod and Custom Car Hall of Fame museum, where an impressive display of cars will have motor-enthusiasts entertained for hours.
